The process for bringing a birth injury claim is straightforward. First, contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. Second, we will gather all the relevant medical records from the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post-delivery timeframes. Third, we will work with qualified medical experts (in such fields as obstetrics, pediatrics, neuroradiology, neonatology, fetal monitoring, nursing, and hospital administration) to determine if your case has merit. Fourth, we initiate the required proceedings with the appropriate board of medicine. Then, if the healthcare providers fail to justly compensate our clients, we proceed to litigation by filing a civil case in court. We conduct thorough discovery, including use of the deposition process and subpoena power, to gather all the facts of the case. We may need to file motions in court. If the case does not settle, we then proceed to a jury trial to obtain a monetary damages award for our clients.
